Both Mississippi State and Ole Miss beat top 10 teams on the same day for the first time ever. College GameDay was in Oxford for the first time.
Each day Mississippi State's women's soccer team takes the field, it is as though it is engaged in a "battle."
No matter what has happened prior to the match, it all comes down to that moment and making the most of each minute played.
Mary Wise, the head coach of the ninth-ranked Florida Gators, came away from Sunday's match at Mississippi State with a tremendous amount of respect for the Bulldogs.

How do you follow up the best game of your career?
With an even better game two weeks later.
Dak Prescott accounted for 336 yards of total offense and five touchdowns, as No. 12 Mississippi State upended No. 6 Texas A&M 48-31 Saturday afternoon in the first matchup of top 15 squads at Davis Wade Stadium since 1986.
It was worth putting this off for a few weeks, but now there's no reason hiding this question anymore.
How can you not consider Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott to be a Heisman Trophy candidate now?
This Bulldog can do it all.
Prescott can run it, throw it and even catch it.
Mississippi State's offense was without two of its staters.
It didn't really matter though as the No. 6 Bulldogs registered their sixth straight 500-yard performance in a 48-31 win over No. 12 Texas A&M Saturday.Â
Starting center Dillon Day was suspended, and the Bulldogs best wide receiver Jameon Lewis was sidelined with a right leg injury.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs were know in the late 1990s under head coach Jackie Sherrill and defensive coordinator Joe Lee Dunn for having an opportunistic defense.
As the Bulldogs progress through the 2014 season, it appears the defensive unit is getting back to that.
MSU has forced 26 turnovers in its last 10 games dating back to last season under coordinator Geoff Collins.
Former Starkville High School quarterback and defensive back Gabe Myles made his first start for the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday.
Myles got the nod in the place of an injured Jameon Lewis and the Bulldogs defeated the Texas A&M Aggies 48-31.
"The next guy just stepped right in with a Gabe Myles," MSU head coach Dan Mullen said.
